- Advanced detection of seizures
- Helps partner maneuver during seizures
- Turns all frowns upside down
Rolex has been a lifesaver to his partner, Rosalie. Since they've teamed up, Rolex has helped to significantly reduce the frequency of her seizures. Rolex also makes it possible for Rosalie to work at a local elementary school. Because he goes to school with her every day, the students are able to learn about epilepsy and other disabilities as well as know how to behave around a service animal.
The Canine Assistants program trains and provides service dogs for those who have physical disabilities, seizure conditions or other special needs. Thanks to support from Milk-Bone®, Canine Assistants has placed more than 2,000 hero dogs with individuals across the U.S.
